What is Nettle Leaf Extract?
Nettle leaf extract(Urtica dioica) or stinging nettle is herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the family Urticaceae. It is native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa and western North America. The plant has many stinging hairs on the leaves and stems which act like needles injecting histamine and other chemicals that create a stinging sensation when touched. From ancient times nettle has been known as a source of food, fiber and as a medicinal herb. Ancient Egyptians used the infusion of nettle for relief of arthritis and lumbago pains. And flogging with fresh nettle called urtification was prescribed to treat chronic rheumatism, lethargy, coma and paralysis.
Nettle leaf extract is recognized for its nutritional value. It is rich in vitamins C, B2, K1, carotenoids and tocopherols, minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, silicium, chlorine, manganese, cooper and iron, as well essential fatty acid – Linolenic (Omega-3) and chlorophyll. Stinging nettle leaf extract has analgesic, antiinflammatory, antiallergenic, antirheumatic, stimulating, antibacterial and antiviral properties and traditionally is used to treat disorders of kidneys and urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system, anemia. Nettle is favourable also for its anti aging properties, healing different skin issues and promoting healthy and strong hair.

Nettle Leaf Extract Benefits:
With Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), affecting many men as they age, recent studies have found that nettle leaf extract is effective in reducing prostate size. It not only reduces the prostate size, it also alleviates the symptoms such as the frequent urge to urinate, painful urination and incomplete emptying of the bladder.
It is thought that the bioactive phytochemicals in Nettle exert a series of complex effects on the prostate. These active ingredients can inhibit the binding of the androgenic steroid hormone to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).
A small, placebo-controlled British study looked the effectiveness of Nettle for the relief of osteoarthritis pain. Participants who applied stinging Nettle to painful joints for one week reported significantly greater reductions in pain than those who used the placebo.
In another study, scientists used a Nettle Leaf extract to observe its effects on dendretic cells. Dendretic cells play an active role in the initiation of rheumatoid arthritis. Nettle Leaf extract was able to keep dendretic cells from growing, but did not kill the cells. It also reduced the number of protein genes associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Probably the most significant observation in this study was that Nettle Leaf extract had a positive effect against the genes associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Stinging nettle leaf extract was also able to curb T cell (or white blood cell) proliferation, reducing infection.
3.Kidney and Gallbladder Health
Nettle leaf extract has long been known as an effective diuretic, however it also has nephridic qualities – meaning that it can help to break down stones in the kidney and gallbladder, preventing these painful conditions from worsening or requiring those stones to be either passed or surgically removed. Also, as a diuretic, stinging nettle helps to eliminate toxins quickly, thereby protecting against bladder infections.
